ICES Western is a satellite site of the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences in Toronto. Officially launched in December 2012, ICES Western is a collaborative initiative between Lawson Health Research Institute, Western University, the London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) and St. Joseph’s Healthcare. Core funding for the facility build and 5-year start-up costs was provided by the Academic Medical Organization of Southwestern Ontario (AMOSO), over 10 departments in the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, Western University and Lawson Health Research Institute.

ICES Western is located at the London Health Sciences Centre, Victoria Hospital, and also hosts the provincial ICES Kidney, Dialysis & Transplantation Program. ICES Western has a strong focus on supporting trainees and new investigators through initiatives such as the Faculty Scholars Program.
